We Love to Sing with You
Art by Eloise Gleichenhaus, 2009

These pictures and kind words from friends of “Sing Books with Emily” are among my most valued treasures.

Of course I relish the compliments from the kids and joy in receiving evidence that they find value in Singing Books with me. But what jumps out at me the very most in these notes is the LOVE in the hearts of these children. Music and songs are excellent for enriching the intellectual and cultural lives of the children, but music and songs also nurture love, understanding, and togetherness. Singing songs together is magic. You can see that magic expressed in these notes.

Thank you friends!

Something about a 4 year old boy named Steve is gonna melt your heart. I got some wonderful pictures and notes from students of Miss Danielle’s Head Start PreK class today. This one from Steve includes his comments, “I love you. I love the singing books and to play in the doll house.” And, “This is Mrs. G. She has eyeballs and big hair.” Gee wiz. It’s just these things could not possibly be better than they are. Little jewels from the box of the best things life has to offer.

I had the incredible privilege to “Sing Books” once a month to a congregation of all the Kindergarten classes at  Tuckahoe Elementary School during the 2009/2010 school year.  The children made me homemade cards with wonderful drawings and fabulous things to say.  My heartfelt thanks go to the children and their teachers.

Pictures from Kindergarten 2010

I adore how so many of the kids made pictures of our time together.  When I sing to the kids, I sit in a chair and hold up a book so they can see.  I sing the songs either a-capella or with a cd player and instrumental tracks.  Many of the kids created pictures of this…you can see the children sitting on the carpet, me sitting in the chair with the books, cd player, and musical notes!

SBWE DAILY SONG 10/18/2018 SING BOOKS WITH EMILY 10/18/2018 DO YOUR EARS HANG LOW (as Illustrated by Jenny Cooper), an Illustrated Song https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2018/10/18/do-your-ears-hang-low-as-illustrated-by-jenny-cooper/ BITLY LINK https://bit.ly/2QXVS2o DESCRIPTION I LOVE this illustration of DO YOUR EARS HANG LOW.  I acquired it in 2018 and it sat on the shelf for a long time before I was able to really look at it, document it, and decide how to use it. This will certainly be the illustration that I use for singing the song.  There are 4 verses in this, each one as enjoyable as the next. And the pictures, all with animals, are simultaneously sensitive and hilarious.  These pictures have a great sense of humor without making fun of the animals.

SBWE DAILY SONG 10/17/2018 SING BOOKS WITH EMILY 10/17/2018 LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH, an Illustrated Song https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/10/18/let-there-be-peace-on-earth-a-singable-picture- book/ BITLY LINK https://bit.ly/2COTx6L LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH is an important song. It's a prayer and a call to action. Sometimes we hope for things to get better, but this song reminds us that if things are going to get better, it's up to each one of us to take an active role in making that happen. Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. I have arranged this song for my own use and you can find a song sheet with ukulele or guitar chords in the Sing Books with Emily blog link above that is dedicated to this illustrated song. I have tried to simplify this song to make it less of an oversung anthem and make it more of an easy to sing folk song. This song can be sweet hearted and simple. Let's sing it together and remember that if we are to have a more peaceful world, country, and community, we've got to let peace flourish in our own hearts first. A special shout of thank you to teacher Ms. Chloe Yazdani for the wonderful gift of the lazer cut PEACE earrings. The perfect accessory for this song!

SING BOOKS WITH EMILY 10/15/2018 THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN TOSSED UP IN A BASKET, an Illustrated Song https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2014/09/03/there-was-an-old-woman-tossed-up-in-a-basket-a-singable-mother-goose-nursery-rhyme/ BITLY LINK https://bit.ly/2PBl3aL THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN TOSSED UP IN A BASKET is still one of my favorite rhymes to sing. I love that Old Woman. I love that she flies up to the sky with a job to do, that she earnestly answers your question, and she invites us to come along with her. And I love that she is a witch. A good witch. This is one of the first rhymes that I wanted to sing, found a recording for, adapted the tune to my own liking, and developed my own chords for accompanying the singing. I was proud of my tiny achievement and I still enjoy sharing the results. There was not an individual illustration for this Old Woman, but there were may single page treatments in compilations of rhymes. So I picked my favorite ones to make a serviceable book to use for singing this little gem to kids.
